I saw some strange clip supposedly from a snowboarding game, so I came to Giant Bomb hoping maybe there's a quicklook, even though it's such an old one. I got everything I could have possible wanted :) Thanks Ryan.

Watching this kind of makes me feel like this and Saints Row the Third occupy the same universe.

this man has the right idea.

The cutscenes were cool and all but I wish you guys would have actually shown more than three minutes of snowboarding.

I've waited almost three years to tell you you, sir, are wrong.

Agreed.

I have no idea what's going on in this Quick Look but I approve!

Wow, they used the Screaming Skull poster for the El Passo De La Meurta

I've been trying to hunt this game down at Gamestop since I saw it was only 5 bucks...it still bugs me I don't have it 1000/1000. It was probably the best Launch Title for 360 in hindsight, although I never owned it, just rented it from GameFly at the time. This Quick Look has only intensified my hunt...if only 2K would try and make an Amped 4 in the same style as this game. Oh well, I guess that's what SSX is for.

This is possibly the greatest QL of all time.

I forgot how amazing this QL is!

twisted pixel has nothing on this

One of the best quick looks I've seen so far and the giant bomb crew barely say anything.

Dis is Precious Roy! And a lotta these movies shoulda had me in 'em!

I still quote this game to this day.  And I argue that it's not bad gameplay wise.  Weird in comparison to other snowboarding games, but I still had fun with it in terms of the actual game.

Dude, I bought and beat this game because of this video. I didn't really like it, other than the stupidly amazing cutscenes. It's okay, but it's really nothing special.

Posted by SBYM

So great.

Posted by BaneFireLord

That was amazing.

Oh man, I should've gotten this instead of skate.

I got it off ebay because of this Quick Look. Totally worth the £7 just for the cutscenes. Snowboarding is nothing special. "
I got it a couple days ago too, I'm getting second place on the leaderboards for some of the challenges. That either means I'm surprisingly good or not many people got this at all. :<
 
Still, fun game, the controls aren't the most responsive though.

is there really a level where yousnowboard onto a zeppelin?
Posted by truebornracer

You know it's funny, I played this game when it came out and I think I was too young to fully 'get' it, looking back on it now though... so good.

I think I've heard of them. Something about how they USED to be awesome.
 
But anyway, watching that video shows just how much tighter and more succinct these guys are now with their video reviews.

This is... bizarre.

Posted by LordAndrew

Oh man, this game looks so ridiculous. Awesome.

Posted by WarlordPayne

They used Hero Quest tiles for that Adventure Quest part, awesome.

Posted by GritsNGravy

Man that game was crazy, I hope I can still find my copy and look at it, but not play it.
Posted by Yodzilla

Man now I feel really bad for skipping out on Amped 3.  The first two were so bland and boring compared to SSX but this one actually looks like it had a soul.
 
:(

I was one of the lucky guys to work on Amped 3 at Indie Built.   I just spent the last hour laughing and wiping away tears.  And all of the positive comments have made my day.  I imagine it's like what a teacher feels after one of their students comes to visit years later and says "you changed my life"...like that, except, you know, it was a video game, and you played it one time and liked it... 
Thanks for the memories giantbomb!     
 
BTW.  2K Games (who owned Indie Built) is led by heartless men who worked us to death for Amped3 and then kicked us to the curb after the game was done.

They new this was the end of the line so they just went completely balls to the wall nuts with it. 
 
...and god bless them for it XDDD

Wow. I watched that.

...That was great. I loved the comet/asteroid/meteor at the end.

Posted by Player1

Anyone else notice how Jeff and Ryan both seem to be very good at making custom characters? I can never think of anything fitting or clever when it comes to that. 

Posted by ToxicFruit

That just made my day,week,month or year

Edited by HT101

This game seems like one that I will now buy.  Fortunately, the Gamestop near me has a copy available.  May pick it up and some other cheap games tonight.
 
EDIT: I did pick it up and also bought the first GRAW.  Both are pretty sweet.

Posted by Yummylee

Some of it was hilarious, while some was just so random it was...weird. 
 
Also alot of Jeff's laughing sounded a little forced.
Posted by IceTrey87

It was so weird hearing The Rocket Summer in the background when you started playing.  I've actually seen that guy before he's pretty crazy.  I need to go get this game, it's gotta be mad cheap by now.

Posted by BD_Mr_Bubbles

How did I miss this game?

Posted by Telecomdog

That was awsome, thanks guys!

I love this game so much.  This was probably my most satisfying game to get all 1000 achievement points in.
 
So sad they won't be making another :(
